Of their three CDs, Herzeleid is by far the most angry and intense. It's not going to appeal to all musical taste; if you want some of their more thought-provoking work, "Mutter" is your best bet. "Herzeleid" is designed to go straight for the throat.
This music is designed to illicit a response; whenever I go for a run, I load up "Asche Zu Asche", "Laichzeit" and "Du Reischt so Gut" into my MP3 player. It's somewhat monotonous, but the beat is constant, and the band sounds angry enough to get anybody's heart beating faster.
Be warned, though, Rammstein's lyrics aren't going to appeal to a lot of people. "Laichzeit," for example, means "Spawning Time." I'll let you use your imagination from there on out.
Still, "Herzeleid" is among the best death metal on the market today. If you're new to Rammstein, though, I suggest picking up their second album, "Sehnsucht," first, which was their first album released in the US and has the hit "Du Hast" on it.
1)Wollt ihr das bett in flammen sehen? (Do you want to see the bed in flames): 10/10- great song, with a rousing chorus at the end and hard guitar rythms.
2)Der Meister (The Master): 9/10-Good song, but the vocals get a little wierd and it sounds a bit too happy. Slightly out of Place.
3)Weisses Fleisch (White Flesh):10/10-A fast song, with cool-sounding lyrics and a nice beat.
4)Asche Zu Asche (Ashes to Ashes):10/10-Great song; goes well with the previous track.
5)Seeman (Seaman):9/10-A slow song, really mournful.
6)Du Riechst so gut (You smell so good):10/10-A cool song, with hard beats and guitars, and cool vocals. Singer Till Lindeman's voice works especially well on this song.
7)Das Alte Leid (The Old Sorrow):10/10-A really hard song, but at a slower tempo. At five minutes long, it provides five minutes of solid metal. Lindemann's true talent comes out in this song, most noteably when the song stops as he yells out "Ich Will Ficken!" (I want to F---).
8)Heirate Mich (Marry Me):10/10-Awesome song, with slightly gothic-sounding vocals at times, and a cool guitar solo.
9)Herzeleid (Heartache):10/10-Another hard song, with only about twenty words spoken syllable by syllable.
10)Laichzeit (Spawning Time): 13/10 (I don't care if it's not possible--it's not possible for anyone else to make this awesome a song)-Starts out a little techno-ish, but quickly moves into a hard rock tune. With a few guitar solos and another bellow by Lindeman, this is the best song on the disc.
11)Rammstein (Rammstein):10/10-the band's title track is one of its best.Read more ›
This album contains many standout tracks like "Du Reichst So Gut" an extremely energetic, catchy song which will have you singing along to it in no time, "Weisses Fleisch" another energetic, catchy song which will have you singing along to it, "Laichzeit" another one of their standout tracks which has some of the keyboardist best work, and again this is another catchy, energetic, fun to sing along to song. The only filler track is "Rammstein" which is just stupidly repetitive and boring, i don't care if it has a great message or its their title track it just plain sucks.
Positives: Extremely high replay value, catchy, extremely unforgettable, perfect for any mood, many standout tracks, only 1 filler track.
Negatives: Till's voice isn't very good when compared to his other albums, 1 filler track.
Album ratings: Mutter: 4.75 Sehnsucht: 4.25 (this album): 4.5/5
Hope this helped.
This is absolutely not the case with Rammstein, they are a truly great band. No one else can sustain the aggresive, searing guitars and tenacity as Rammstein and actually NOT sound the same and monotonous on every track. They should be known for their metal/industrial style, not as just another heavy metal band.
If you are not convinced, here are some interpretations of the track titles. The album title, "Herzeleid" is Heartache in our native tongue. "Der Meister,"a very good track, translates to The Man. "Weisses Fleisch", another good one, is White Flesh. "Asche Zu Asche" is Ashes to Ashes. The track "Seamann" is as mellow you will ever hear these guys play, it is a ballad titled The Sailor. "Riechst So Gut" is You Smell so Good. "Heirate Mich" was the first song I ever heard by Rammstein (from the movie Lost Highway) and it means Marry Me, though the actual lyrics have very little to do with the title. That's something you should look into on your own time! Those are all the ones I could interpret. It was interesting to actually find out what was being said in these songs.
This turned out to be more of a lecture than a review, I am sorry! None the less, there guys are intense. It doesn't matter what they are brooding about, they will have you banging your head.
